Help Trim the WAG’s Christmas Tree

Kick-start your holiday season at the Winnipeg Art Gallery’s second annual Christmas tree-trimming party from 6 to 9pm on Thursday, December 8 in Eckhardt Hall. The event is free (regular pricing applies for exhibitions). Donations to the WAG Studio Program are welcome.

It’s a fun-filled evening for the whole family. Enjoy festive songs performed by the Pembina Trail Voices student choir and then savor a hot cup of cocoa with cookies. Bring your camera and take your picture with Santa. Best of all, the WAG elves will be on hand to help you create your own artful ornaments to hang on the tree. Make trimming the WAG’s tree part of your family’s holiday tradition!

The Gallery Shop will be open for the evening with special offers on a wide range of gifts that are perfect for the season.

“We introduced the tree-trimming event last year and were thrilled with the positive response from the public,” says Youth Program Educator Rachel Baerg. “The WAG is always looking for new and exciting ways to connect with youth and families in our community. Youth Programs at the WAG are continually growing and expanding and include quality art classes, Family Sundays, children’s Birthday pARTies, as well as week-long Art Camps for kids during the Summer and Spring Break. This unique tree decorating event is yet another way of drawing families in to experience all that the WAG has to offer.”

“The WAG’s tree-trimming party is a wonderful opportunity to spend time with your family in a creative atmosphere,” says Director Stephen Borys. “We are very excited to share this special tradition with the city and province.”

Sincere thanks to Shelmerdine Nurseries for their generous support.
